Voice Compare » Johnny Bravo » Johnny Bravo
Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Johnny Bravo with sound clips and images.
Johnny Bravo is the title character of the Johnny Bravo TV series (whom originated as a short from the What a Cartoon! TV series). Johnny Bravo is a muscular young man with a long blond pompadour hairstyle whom lives with his mother Bunny Bravo. A good portion of the humor of his show is his lack of intelligence (which his intelligence can go from average to seemingly non-existent) and his love for hitting on beautiful women and how they almost always reject him. Johnny's design is one big homage of certain 50's icons such as Elvis Presley and James Dean and 50s-based icon Arthur "The Fonz" Fonzarelli.
EDITOR'S OPINIONFor the first Johnny Bravo VC I thought I do a little something for the titular character himself... JOHNNY BRAVO! Now before we do the Monkey let us begin with this first...
Jeff Bennett- Series creator Van Partible picked Jeff as the first voice of Johnny due to how Jeff can do a good Elvis impression and one can certainly see why. Jeff's performance suited Johnny's persona well (both the earlier episodes and the somewhat later episodes when the show got retooled) and is a fine example of Jeff's voice work.
Marc Silk- Now I am sure many of you are wondering WHY Johnny had to have a different VA in the UK version of the show especially considering on how Marc was trying to impersonate Jeff. But to be fair Marc's impersonation was decent even if his voice was a little too high but his performance for the role is fairly okay.
Neil Kaplan- The quality of Neil's attempt at trying to impersonate Jeff is inconsistent at best as sometimes his voice and performance was decent and at other times not so much. Still its an okay example of Neil's work in general but its not one of the better "stand-in" voices of that game. (Though oddly enough Neil's voice for the role does occasionally sound like Richard Epcar though.)
Overall I am of course going with Jeff with Marc at a decent second and Neil as an okay third.
